Abstract

It is tempting to portray think tanks as a “fifth column” of powerful corporate interests, reflecting the preferences of political and economic “power elites” (Mills 1956). For Naomi Klein, for instance, think tanks are important adversaries of the political left: ‘We did not lose the battles of ideas. We were not outsmarted and we were not out-argued,’ we lost because we were crushed. Sometimes we were crushed by army tanks, and sometimes we were crushed by think tanks. And by think tanks I mean the people who are paid to think by the makers of tanks’ (Klein 2007).
